Blockbuster is Back – As a Bar
Today, it seems that we spend more time looking for something to watch than we do actually watching it.
I know that when I get to the menu of a streaming service, it takes me MUCH TOO LONG to make a decision on what to watch. Sometimes I just watch 30 or 40 trailers and then call it a night.
And, if you recall, things weren't so different back in the 1980s, when Blockbuster was at its peak.
I remember showering and dressing as if I was going to a social event before heading to Blockbuster (because let's face it: you never know who you'll run into there). And then taking who knows how long before finally deciding on which movie to rent.
By the time I'd get home, it was almost as if the movie-watching part of the evening was a second thought.
But, a trip to Blockbuster is a mere faded memory to many - until now.
Blockbuster is making a sort of a comeback, but this time, it's adults only.
Daily Meal is reporting that a Blockbuster pop-up bar has debuted in Los Angeles and, if you didn't know better, you'd feel as if you've been time-warped back to the 1980s.
According to the story, the Blockbuster bar looks and feels like the Blockbuster video stores, except instead of picking a movie to rent, you pick a movie-themed drink for the mixologist to bring to life for you.
While you are having your cocktail, you can also enjoy a few choices from the bar's menu.
Tickets for the experience are listed at $45 on the Blockbuster website, but drinks and food are extra, of course.
